    We just had ours and lost .my husband has Alzheimer's and vascular dementia and had a stroke all they could say was we were managing the situation ..we found it very hard as they seem to not care about your situation. If you go to your appeal then I would advise you to talk to CAB first .And get as much paperwork work you can from Doctors etc good luck hope it all work out for you .ps there is 3 on the panel that ask questions .

    Hi Salina and welcome

    My wife won her paper based appeal but it is by far better to attend unless doing so contradicts your claim
    You should present your case with as much detail as possible but also keep it relevant and simple. This applies whether you attend or not

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    your wife is very fortunate to have you wealth of knowledge.

    from what I read on hear attending tribunal has no success that paper based but it depends on how good you are at getting the information across in paper
